Inject some style into your space with these inspiring design finds:
1 Italian job
The Belmondo collection by luxury Italian furniture brand Meridiani is now available in the UAE. Belmondo's modular sofa units come with removable covers and are made from wood, non-deformable polyurethane and reinforced feathers.
2 Cook off
With barbecue season just around the corner, it's time to invest in a new grill. We love Weber's Genesis EP-330, which is now offered in a stylish copper finish. A large cooking area, stainless steel work surfaces, practical built-in tool holders, a front mounted control panel and integrated thermometer mean you'll be cooking up a storm in no time.

3 Paper chase
If you're looking to stock up on Diwali gifts or Indian-inspired homeware and fashion items, head down to the Majestic Hotel in Bur Dubai tomorrow for Palette, a one-day exhibition featuring traditional folk art, accessories and idols, handcrafted marble, Indo-fusion fashion items and more. Make sure to check out the Paper Spice stand for stationery, home accessories and jewellery made out of recycled paper and other natural materials.
Palette, October 13, 10am to 8pm, Majestic Hotel, Mankhool Road, Bur Dubai
4 Birds of a feather
We've long been fans of Michael Aram's sculptural, handcrafted tableware, but his Black Feather collection could be our favourite yet. Available exclusively from Harvey Nichols, Dubai, the collection includes serving sets, serving bowls, nut dishes, cracker plates and vases made from black nickelplate and stainless steel.

5 Ship shape
The One's Autumn/Winter 2012 collection is in stores now. The collection features a fresh take on Long Island style, with cool, calm colourways, raw woods and natural leathers. There are also vintage accessories like this poster, a homage to the 1930s cruise liner Normandie.
